Jenna has spent her career at the intersection of business and government, pursuing big opportunities and solving big challenges. Before joining BlueWave, Jenna served as the Vice President for Strategy and Engagement at MxD, a DoD-funded manufacturing innovation facility in Chicago, working with the U.S. government, U.S. firms and academic institutions to innovate secure solutions to help the U.S. maintain and grow its technology superiority and competitiveness. Prior to that, Jenna worked in a number of roles in government, including serving as Director of the Advocacy Center at the U.S. Department of Commerce, leading advocacy strategy for nearly 1,200 transactions valued at $945 billion, expanding U.S. commercial presence in global infrastructure initiatives and at the multilateral development banks, including reopening the U.S. commercial office at the African Development Bank in Abidjan. Jenna also worked as the Director of the Advisory Committee and Industry Outreach Office at the Department of Commerce, ensuring outside perspectives were brought into the policymaking process.
